The colour is clear peridot, very nice. There's a big, minty wormwood aroma with sweet anise underneath. Powdery and earthy.

The louche is very weak. Nice blue-green colour but very thin. With water it smells mostly of strong wormwood with some hyssop. Still earthy.

Powerful flavour, dominated by that minty wormwood. Not much anise, more hyssop. Much sweeter and less bitter than expected based on the herb levels. Screams to be paired with chocolate chip cookies. Very crisp.

There's a bitterness in the finish that rises from the depths and fades as the mintiness lingers.

This is my sort of absinthe, disregarding the louche. More wormwood, less anise. It's not what people think of as the classic absinthe flavour but it's exactly what I enjoy.
